Default How to Paint videos

Would anyone benefit from videos? I can make them from beginner to advanced. I can also show you how to use computer graphics.

I would really appreciate some videos on how to airbrush. I just recently picked up an iwata hp-cs and been practicing on clear transparencies.
Maybe some videos on how to properly thin paint and what air pressure to use. Also what razor tip is best for cutting out curved deaigns with liquid mask?

I agree on thinning the paint. The more detailed the better. Even if you are a pro at the little steps, from my perspective, seeing them on a video helps a lot even if you do not think it matters. I would watch them for sure.

I use a computer for all of my graphics. As far as cutting I use a #11 blade in a hobby knife (Exacto style) You might want to try whats called a swivel knife. The blade spins inside the knife. Cutting corners is practice practice practice. If you want to learn how to cut with out cutting the surface I tell my students to put some masking material on a balloon and cut it. If you pop the balloon your cutting to deep. (Really just practice on plastic and just cut as light as possible the balloon thing is real hard to do> I have only been able to do it a few times in the 30+ years painting) Try it though it is good practice.

Thinning depends on the paint you are using and what your spraying. Solids, Pearls, Candies, I mix them all different. Try to stick to the consistency of milk.

I am going to do one tomorrow I will get it posted ASAP. It will be an advanced paint video but you will get most everything you need for beginning as well. Painting a Pro Line Silverado body for my Short Course trucks.

A little off topic but I just wanted to share one my first paint jobs that I used some fading. Just finished it this past weekend using Liquid mask, createx and faskolor paint. I shot this at 28 psi with a iwata hp-cs. Having some trouble with the paint flowing consistant and also I get some spidering. Does that mean the paint is to thin?

Whats wrong with it? I think it looks awesome and I have been painting for 30+ years. Great colors, awesome design over all awesome paint job. Can you post me a more detailed photo of what your having trouble with. Some of the things people have when they are learning are, thinning, spraying (over coating), and cleanliness. Some needle sizes wont spray metallics or pearls very easily. You will need a .5 needle/fluid nozzle size to spray these easier. When you spray don't try to coat it in one coat. You can spray it to dry to. Tell me more specific in what troubles your having so I can help you.

Sure if you google Mike Royal Airbrush you will find some basic airbrush videos already made. Everything is transferable. There is a lot there you will need to learn. Everyone thinks airbrushing is point and shoot, the brush does all the work. I get questions on airbrush.com like, "What airbrush will I use to make awesome portraits" or the coolest graphics with"
